You may find that the connected watches are identical, with a small screen, rather fragile and not very evolutionary?Functions range from monitoring fitness, health, calculating the number of steps, but also measuring calories burned, or sleep patterns.
|Several weak points on this watch :|
|– Not enough functionality for good health monitoring|
|– Not enough sport-oriented features|
|– The impossibility of putting new applications|
This article will help you see more clearly.
A watch connected for health
Tracking systems for connected watches have become very sophisticated, and can perfectly provide information about your physical condition.They are now equipped with many advanced sensors.
Our tests have shown that the D13 is one of the least interesting models if we want to have a healthy follow-up.It can be an aesthetic object, even if some may not find it very attractive.
The operating system remains the weak point of the watches produced by Fossil; and this D13 is no exception.It is still slow and not very intuitive to use.We would have preferred something more conventional.
You will therefore have to go through an acclimatization phase on the interface before taking full advantage of this watch.
Unlike many other models, this model is not equipped with sleep monitoring.
The sensitivity of the accelerometer is able to detect even micro-vibrations of the wrist and arm.The movements will then be analysed and compared on a daily basis.That is to say that the gestures of the hand or arms will be translated into movement, synchronized to your health application and will give rise to health advice.
It also allows you to easily monitor your heartbeat and generate alerts in case there are too many beats.
There is no sensor and no application that reproduces the electrocardiogram curve on this watch.
Interesting for everyday life?
Are all connected watches gadgets or are some of them special?Knowing that high-performance models are usually expensive to buy.For the D13, this is what you can expect.
Hopofit has designed a reliable model that corresponds to classic needs.You’ll appreciate what she brings to you.
The battery has an average power of 230 mAh.The manufacturer considers the service life to be up to 15 hours.
This model does not have GPS.You can find a lot of other watches at the same price, which they have.
Note that it has a watertightness certification.Don’t worry about immersing it in your bath water.We haven’t tried it at sea, but under the kitchen tap, it works.
No security glass has been fitted to this watch.
The touch screen of the watch is efficient and you can navigate through the various menus without difficulty.It will not be possible to make your payments without contacts, as it is devoid of the NFC function.Last point about the features; this is the music function.You will have to choose another watch for this.
The smartwatch designed for sports
The connected watch offers an interesting alternative to tracking devices, which are only oriented towards sport or health.It allows you to analyze performance in real time.Is D13 a new electronic gadget?
Fossil has not really provided this watch for users who are physically active.Installed applications do not track data or statistics.
The battery power of 230 mAh is correct.
Unlike some competing models, this watch does not include GPS.This means that you will need to carry your smartphone with your watch if you want to accurately track your running, cycling or hiking session.
The watch does not have a SIM card, and therefore does not have 3G access.The advantage, however, is that it reduces the consumption on the battery.
Fossil watches are also designed to track fitness data such as heart rate.
Most importantly, it records all data on calories burned.
On the other hand, if you are used to playing sports with music, this watch will be of no use to you.
The watch and possible applications
Depending on the brand of the watch, the operating system used to operate the watch is not the same.This means that not all applications are equivalent, nor is the use you will make of them.These applications not only display notifications on your wrist, they can keep you entertained, track your fitness and health, and help you stay organized.
Most of the time, you will have to content yourself with the applications installed by default on this smartwatch.
The choice of this watch will be made only on the applications it contains.Also, apart from the original applications, there is no possibility of having any others.
With its 1.3-inch screen, it is one of the standard watches with a clear display of data.Finally, its 230 mAh battery is in the average.Last point concerning possible new applications in addition to what is planned: this will be out of the question due to its specific configuration.It is a basic watch, dedicated to simple uses.
The D13 in conclusion
At the end of our tests, we can only conclude that this watch corresponds to an entry-level product.Its low price may make you want to buy it.
The few weak points could be:
– Little functionality for health monitoring
– Not enough sport-oriented features
– The impossibility of putting new applications
